ROCKFORD (WREX) – If you ever wanted to read about some of the experiences a surgeon goes through, you can do so through words written by a surgeon working in Rockford.
Dr. James Cole, who is a Trauma and General Surgeon/Trauma Medical Director SwedishAmerican, has a book out called Trauma: My Life as an Emergency Surgeon. The 2012 book is a compilation of what Dr. Cole says are the most extreme, life-altering experiences he has had as an emergency surgeon throughout his career.
“Some of these stories are pretty dramatic and some of them affected me a lot, you know emotionally or I could identify with them in some way shape or form,” Dr. Cole said. “And they sort of lingered in my mind, certain people that died or certain heinous traumatic injuries that I kind of just kept thinking about over and over.”
